Protein Futures – Innovative science and technology for today and tomorrow

How are we going to feed an extra two billion people come 2050? Circular economy, plant protein, aquaculture, precision fermentation and traceability are parts of the solution.

The global population will reach 9.7 billion by 2050, fuelling the demand for protein. The world will need to produce more protein, more sustainably, from a variety of sources. As a major producer and exporter of protein, Australia's agrifood industry is well placed to develop novel, differentiated protein products that meet the requirements and changing dietary patterns of the modern health- and welfare-conscious consumer.

This CSIRO symposium taking place in Brisbane and online on 14 and 15 June 2022 will address the challenges and current state of science and technology in protein production for the future. It will provide an open forum for leading protein and food scientists to discuss challenges and opportunities in partnership with industry stakeholders and thought leaders.
